Termite Treatment Options

Baiting or Cleaning Is our First Line of Defense

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in specific locations around your house and once termite activity is discovered, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a small amount is needed. Termites consume the bait and carry it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The Other Initial Alternative Is:

Termite dusting is the first phase of a termite treatment as it involves utilizing active termites. Sydney’s Castle Hill Pest Controluse Termidor Dust which is non-repellent and is 95.5% food alpha cellulose, the very same material utilized as the food source in most of the termite bait systems.

To Use Termidor Dust: Little holes are made in plagued lumber or straight onto termite routes. Using a little puffer, fine dust is puffed directly onto termites within the infested lumber, these holes are covered to seal the workings, to prevent any dust escaping and to decrease disruption of the termites.

The termites will continue togo about their normal activities long enough to move the Termidor Dust to unwary termites within the colony. It will generally take 3-6 weeks for the colony to be impacted by the dust.

Termite dusting however does not provide an on-going protection to a structure from future termite attacks. There may be more than one termite nest within striking distance and termites are constantly establishing brand-new nests.

This is why a termite soil treatment is critical following termite dusting.

Second Stage of a Termite Treatment

Termite Soil Treatment: Termite soil treatments are the preferred option for eliminating termite problems. However, soil treatment does depend upon the building design of your house and can be discussed with the service technician on the day of the termite evaluation.

Termite soil barrier treatments are applied to soil locations in which the structure is in contact with consisting of:

  • Subfloor.

  • Concrete slab perimeters.
  • External wall perimeters.
  • Execution of soil treatment.

If the distance between the soil and flooring woods is greater than 400-mm the soiled locations within the subfloor are trenched and treated. In any case we generally choose to treat the whole of the subfloor. This increases surface area coverage in the subfloor and therefore increases the likelihood of termites coming into contact with Termidor.

Concrete perimeters are drilled at roughly 20 to 30-cm centres (1.2-cm holes), injected and re-concreted, as if nothing occurred.

These locations could consist of:.

  • Patios.
  • Paths.
  • Garages.
  • Fireplaces.
  • Bathrooms.
  •  Laundries.
  • External Boundary Walls.
  • Soiled locations will be trenched or rodded.
  • Concrete locations will be drilled.

There Are 2 Main Kind Of Soil Treatments:.

Repellent: Repellent termiticides work by creating a termite toxic barrier around a house. The treated locations become a no-go zone for termites. In order to work properly, these termiticides require to be applied in an unbroken zone around the structures. This can be tough to attain due to the building and design of your house and if there is concrete against your house. Repellent termiticides are primarily utilized throughout the pre-construction phase.

Non-repellent: With non-repellent termiticide, termites are not able to detect that a location has been treated and for this reason do not avoid the treated location. When the termites go through the termiticide, they make contact with the active ingredient, return to the colony and infest the unwary termites, which will result in their extermination.

Castle Hill Pest Control offers a 5-year warranty on non-repellent treatment. Conditions do apply and are subject to the house structure and design.

Termite Baiting & Monitoring Systems.

Termite baiting does not involve spraying chemicals or trenching. Stations are placed in specific locations around your house and once termite activity is discovered, baits are placed inside the existing stations. The termite bait utilized is non-chemical that contains an active ingredient, so reliable that only a small amount is needed. Termites consume the bait and carry it to back the colony where they share it with other termites.

The tracking and baiting is a complete system that includes

  • Positioning tracking stations into the ground around the entire external boundary of the property.

  • Positioning unique stations inside the structure if there are active termites.

Termite baiting systems work very well, and once a colony is eliminated or managed, the termite tracking stations will continue to safeguard your house against new termite activity. The approximated time of colony removal is 3– 6 months.
